Artisan Wednesday Wow - 07/31/13

Here we are ... on our very last week together as Stampin' Up's Artisan Design Team!  Holy smokes ... where DID this year go??? And OH HOW I LOVE SARAH SAGERT! As an artist and a friend ... she nails it EVERY.SINGLE.TIME! You MUST be sure to check out her FANTASTICALLY-FUN and CREATIVE card creation!!

This picture was taken on the BEST day!! When we all met each other last year at Stampin' Up's Convention, most of us really didn't know each other. After spending the whole year chatting on the phone, via email and on Facebook we have become life-long BFF's!!!
We started in the morning during the first day of Convention and had breakfast up the canyon at a lovely little place called Ruth's Diner (which is where we had the picture on this page taken). We spent time eating, laughing ... and just enjoying each other's company. Several of us spent more time during the day shopping ... and eating ... and laughing some more!! What a wonderful day!!!

Back Row: Jeanna Bohanon, Heidi King, Marisa Gunn, Amy Bollman

I kinda feel like the burlap trim looks like a TREE (hahahaha!) ... and the "Friends" banner reminds me of a hammock ... but it is also indicative of the relaxed and fun nature of our friendships now. The friendships I made during the past year with these AMAZING women are by FAR the BEST thing about this year. Hands down ...'

I don't see the tree...but it could be considered the Friendship Tree! Great picture...such wonderful memories!

Such an awesome page! I love it! I am curious as to how you were able to emboss such a long strip of paper without having the embossing overlap? I will have to experiment. I love your "tree" and "hammock" too :)
